Linux Games: Chromium B.S.U.

Filed under
Gaming

It’s been a long time since I offered up a nice Linux game for the Ghacks audience. So I thought, today I will introduce them to one of my favorite Linux time killers Chromium B.S.U. When I first discovered this game it’s original title was simply Chromium. Obviously this was a serious conflict of interest with Google. I have a feeling the name change (adding the B.S.U.) was due to release of the now-famous Google browser.

The game is a side-scrolling space-themed shooter that is very fast-paced and exciting. In fact, the creator of the game intended it to be very challenging and each game to only be about 15 or so minutes long. And that is exactly what it is. Chromium brings back memories of some of my favorite arcade games from the 80s like Galaga (although with far better graphics, sound, and action). So if you like such games, Chromium B.S.U. will be right up your alley.

Chromium is written in C and C++ and absolutely requires hardware acceleration.

The number of bugs I encountered grew over time, and I’ve recently had enough. As a freelance writer, the only thing I need is a working laptop. If that’s not reliable, then I’m wasting time trying to fix the one tool my job requires.
